Dang it, I should have asked this first. Should I get a skimmer there instead first? Can't afford both skimmer a GFO/reactor.

If I go skimmer, they don't have much selection for me though. I don't wanna "upgrade" later, but if I have to then I need to make sure that I can use the one I get in another tank (that's not been started yet).

Any suggestions?

The reagants are included for i think 25 tests. i would buy them now while youre there.

As far as a skimmer, which item will you most likely get to use first? A skimmer is a sump away still unless you choose a hang on back one.

ok I'll keep them in my cart then.

Yep sump still isn't in the works yet and I do want one I can put in there. They had only one I would get which is the Reef Octopus 100 HOB if I got one. I could probably use that on the 55 once it was going but I haven't even started there and don't plan to for a long time yet.

So I'd still be okay without a skimmer til I got the sump going ya think?

Bulk buy purchases

Just got back from Vegas & placed my order today. I'm hoping to get my 55 gallon tank set up within a couple of weeks and here is my list of goodies I have coming :
BRS Fiji Dry Eco Aquarium Live Rock 40 pounds
75 GPD RO/DI 5 Stage *PLUS* System
Red Sea Reef Foundation Pro Multi Test Kit (Ca, KH, Mg)
Instant Ocean Sea Salt Mix - 160 Gallon
Finnex 200W Heater with Digital Controller

Besides sand for my substrate (having trouble deciding where to buy from) I think these items will be a nice start to begin cycling.

A huge thank you to Carey for all the work that goes into something like this!

Carey, I just wanted to let you know I was planning on purchasing a new RO/DI unit from BRS however I had an unexpected expense yesterday so I will have to wait. I would be interested in a near future group buy again if you decide to start another. The unexpected expense was buying my wife a new iPhone since she dropped hers in our fish pond. It was under water about 30 minutes before we could retrieve it. I was teasing her when she tried calling her phone to find it. I asked her if the fish answered. Lol
